Odd sprocket hub issue

This is only my new 04 DL1000 with 42K on it

The sprocket was wobbling - I could cock it 1/8 to 1/4 inch. Took the wheel off and found that the spacer between the wheel bearing and the sprocket bearing was not allowing the sprocket hub to fully seat in the rubber. The bearings all appear to be fully seated and the spacer was facing the correct direction. The bearings also seemed to be in good condition. The axle had been adjusted out so far that it was being pressed on the back side of the slot. I'd assume this was done because the PO never noticed that the sprocket was wobbling?

If I remove the spacer to just test fit the rubber the hub rotates more than I would expect before stopping on the rubber. On my other 2 bikes the sprocket hub is a pretty tight fit in the rubbers and there is no free play.

I've got a new set of wheel and hub bearings/seals on the way. Couple questions
1) Is the rotational slop in the hub to rubber normal?
2) Any idea what would have cause the rest of this?

You need some fresh rubbers.

SO that is number 1

For number 2 - is there any sort of spacer that is supposed to go behind the hub bearing or is it possible that the wheel bearings have just moved towards the hub side of the wheel?

Yup, looks just like that. All the right parts in all the right places. Guess I'll see how it all fits once the new parts get here. Just ordered up a new damper set

i was going to suggest measuring the length of part number 8 first. Stock is 39 mm. Modified is 37 mm. But based on what you said I would say you need the kit.

Time is eroding the visibility of the importance of this fix. Without it chains, sprockets, and cush rubbers last about 11K miles on Most Gen 1 DL1000s. It was the first major challenge faced by the V-Strom communities. IMO, it should be a sticky at the top of the Gen 1 DL1000 forum area. A link to the discussion on VSRI would be very helpful to owners of these bikes athat can go many hundreds of thousands of miles if not neglected.

Well, my tools only measure in Merican but it says 1.537 inches which converts to 39mm or so. I take it you are the guy I ordered the part from this morning.
